Re: Forest prediction thread

I've seen several predictions on here of a two nil win for Forest, and I think they will be right.

Ten quid double on that and The Midnight Club for the National (or Royal Rosa, but only cos it has Royal in the name.)

Re: It was 5 years ago today.....

It was a superb day and so fortunate to have been there to witness it. It also prompted (in my opinion) the best thread ever on Hob Nob which made reference to all the friends and family members who had been loyal Reading supporters, but never lived to see the day they dreamed of - Reading promoted ...

Re: Ipswich (a) predictions

Their minds will be more on Manchester than Ipswich.

Ipswich 3 v 1 Reading

Church or Manset, whoever comes on as sub up front, will get a later consolation.

14 Jan 1970 v Bradford City

I only know this cos I looked it up, I have no recollection of how he scored it.


Left-footed (natch) volley at the Tilehurst End. Big crowd that night as City were managed at the time by old EP favourite Jimmy Wheeler.

Re: FAO Royalee

But success is relative. Anyone who stood on the terraces (or sat in the stand) of Elm Park in the mid seventies, i.e. me and approximately 3,500 others, continued survival in the 'second' division is fine cos its what we aspired to as dreamland. Two years in the 'first' division against Man Utd, Li...

Reading 3 v 1 Preston North End Reading make a fast start to the match with a lot of early possession and from their second corner in the first five minutes the ball drops to Doyle who stabs home from five yards. The game evens out and Preston see a bit more of the ball for the rest of the half unti...
